Hey everyone,


How come that my late 2006 iMac doesn't recognize and external flash drives and not even the CD I inserted into the DVD slot.


Usually, the CD or the external flash drive would appear on the desktop. I also found out that the flash drive is found under Disk Utility but says:


S.M.A.R.T. Status :Not Supported

Does this have anything to do with the problem???


I need to use the mac with my flashdrive fast so does anyone know any answers to the problem?



iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Late 2006 iMac
